Calla Lily



I took quite a few shots (by my standards) of this flower in our yard. These two are about as close to what I was trying to achieve. And just what was I trying to achieve? I don't know. I guess a "I really like that one" thought when I first see it on the computer screen. So as you can surmise I had this "That's okay...I guess" thought when viewing these two.

  5. The top one has my vote. Wow, this is stunning and fabulous all wrapped into one. Since I am prone to loving flowers, especially ones that are yellow and orange together. How do you take care of your Calla Lily's? Do you feed them regularly?
    Nice post...
